The Tiruchi City Corporation has decided to develop the Gandhi Market under the Smart City Mission. N Ravichandran, Commissioner, Tiruchi Corporation, said, “We have taken a policy decision to make use of the available fund under the Smart City Mission to rebuild the Gandhi Market. There is a possibility of establishing a multi-floor market-cum-shopping complex on the existing seven acres of land.” He added that a consultant has been appointed to study the proposal.
The consultant would come out with a feasibility report after taking into account of various issues and views of stakeholders.
Based on the outcome, the Corporation would take further steps to build a modern market. The idea was to make available the ground floor for retail traders and the next two or three floors for building a commercial complex.
